Editor's Notes

October 29, 2019:

Storage containers are a staple that can be found around any organized house. While some are made with attractive wicker or fabric material that can double as home décor, others are made from durable plastic that’s keeps out moisture and is easy to wipe clean. Our selection of plastic storage bins features ones with conveniently stackable designs, many also offering durable handles that make them easy to move around as needed.

Coming on board in this update are the Iris Portable Cases, which feature a scrapbooking-friendly design, including rounded corners to keep the edges of your pages from becoming damaged during storage. (Their 14-inch-square size is great for holding 12-by-12-inch pages.) With their slim design, they’re ideal for organizing craft materials by color, by season, and more. They’ll look neat and tidy when stacked on the shelves in a craft room.

Another new addition is the DilaBee 16-Pack which are baskets that come in four sizes, designed for containing office supplies, toys, makeup, craft projects, tools, fruits and vegetables, baby, clothes, bath accessories, the contents of your junk drawer – the sky’s the limit! Featuring vented sides for airflow, they’re made of BPA-free material that will resist common wear and tear. They come in four cheerful colors and are even safe for use in the freezer.

Leaving the list today are the Remington Tote and the Homz Modulars, both of which don’t seem to hold up as well as the rest.
